Forthcoming Conferences

Bioheterocycles 2015
XVI International Conference on Heterocycles in Bioorganic Chemistry
Metz, France - June 7-11, 2015

The XVI Conference of this series will gather chemists from over the world, involved in the chemistry of heterocycles. The heterocycles in this case will generally be submitted to biological tests, both in medicine as in agriculture. The scientific program will include plenary and invited lectures by top chemists in the field and will be completed by oral communications and poster presentations.

The conference is intended for synthetic chemists interested in heterocycles and biological activities

25th ISHC Congress, August 23-28, 2015
